The Rolex 5500 Air King came to market in 1957 and is an exceptional entry-level vintage Rolex. The case is crafted from stainless steel, protecting the calibre 1530 perpetual movement within from years of wear and tear while maintaining an attractive price tag. The movement itself was among the first in-house Rolex movements ever produced and is not chronometer-rated. The silver dial has aged beautifully and displays the time via silver indices and hands. Minimal text on the dial featuring mainly the Rolex and Air-King logo, allows the dial to take on a clean aesthetic that is widely sought-after by collectors.

Accurate description of watch. Purchase was straight forward. Watch was delivered quickly. Would/will buy from Bob’s again.
I couldn't be happier with my purchase. While not the least expensive option, Bob's service has been great. And, having had the watch assessed by a certified Rolex dealer in NY, I was assured not only was it in extraordinarily good condition cosmetically, the work done on the internal mechanics was excellent. I would recommend Bob's highly.
very accurate description but I assumed it would be in a Rolex box. Excellent service
Affordable. Great credit terms. Awesome watch.
A outstanding piece. Under rated by there scale. If this watch would have came with the original box it could be sold for new old Stock
Bob’s Watches is truly an amazing company. This was my first Pre-Owned watch purchase and it was an amazing experience. I had a few questions and they were answered immediately and unlike many other online dealers they actually have the watches in inventory. Placed my order at 4pm and it was at my door at 10:30am the next morning on the other side of the country. The pricing and experience are truly exceptional!!
Appears unworn - essentially brand new, but it is 58 years old....
